5 Steps to customizing your heirloom album

Just because you are creating your latest family heirloom does not mean that you have to make tons of decisions.  Well if you aren’t ordering an album through me than you might be.

Doing it yourself you’d have to select each image, create layouts, find a site that will make a great quality product for you, make sure that all the images sizes are correct and will print well, dealing with sites’ software…you get the idea.  Projects always seem a lot easier at the beginning (aka the pinterest effect).

Let me take that crafting weight off your shoulders.  All you need to do is complete these 5 steps and I’ll do all the heavy lifting for you!  How does that sound?
